Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers will hold their annual High School Discussion Meet at the OKFB annual meeting in Oklahoma City on Thursday, Nov. 10.
The contest is open to current high school students in 4-H or FFA. Each club or chapter may send one participant, who must attend a brief orientation on November 10 before the contest begins.
The meet provides 4-H and FFA members throughout the state with an educational opportunity to enhance their speaking, reasoning and presentation skills all while analyzing issues in agriculture.
The discussion meet simulates a committee meeting where members engage in conversations about a topic in hopes to foster thought and cooperative problem solving.
The winner of the discussion meet will win a MacBook Air computer, and the other three finalists will win iPad minis.
Advisors must submit the High School Discussion Meet information sheet (PDF link) by October 31, 2016. A competitor’s guide is also available on our Applications Center page.
For more information or details, call Brittany Mikles at (405) 523-2307.
